Whole Foods Love

I’ve recently become obsessed with Whole Foods. I’ve gone there before but on Friday I decided to stock my room with groceries from there and have made a pact that I’ll only eat healthy foods forever! I’m assuming this is just a phase that’ll last two days but in the mean time, I’ll be under my own delusion!

After Spanish class on Friday I went to Whole Foods and picked up some fresh fruit, healthy drinks, cookies, chips, cookies, and popcorn. Needless to say I’ll be going back again this upcoming weekend to get more! I’m basically aiming to be the next Dr. Oz. I’ve eaten most of the food I purchased already (whoops!) so I’ll make sure I get enough that’ll last me a while when I go next time!

Some of the drinks I bought at Whole Foods!

Dancing with the Librarians

On Dancing with the Stars last night, Rob Kardashian, my favorite, made second place. Despite being disappointed, I was also distracted by the fact that there was a Republican CNN debate at the same time. I was so conflicted as to what to watch so I decided to keep flipping channels like a crazy person! I was a little disappointed in this debate as there weren’t as many heated exchanges and verbal attacks as usual! It was just a disappointing television night for me overall!

Today I was a little more productive! I went to the library with my friend Jill and did some homework! Needless to say, I am so far done with half of my assignments! I hadn’t been to my local county library in years and when we went today I was pleasantly surprised to see that it has been completely remodeled and everything is arranged differently than when I was in elementary school! Me and Jill spent about 20 minutes wandering aimlessly trying to find a place to sit and plug in our laptops! Luckily once we found our footing, we were able to get stuff done!

I was also a little sneaky while at the library! Despite its strict no food and drink policy, I was starving and managed to eat a blueberry bagel from Dunkin Donuts while doing work! (Shhh! Be sure not to tell!!!)

Here’s another Black Friday commercial featuring a pretty crazy wacky lady as well! I never noticed the Black Friday commercials before this year but I love them all! Plus, this one takes its tune from the masterpiece that is “Friday.”

It’s Finals! Getting Down With Finals!

Hopefully “Friday” is now stuck in your head!

Finals are almost over which is very exciting because it means no more tests. As soon as my final is over I have to head back to my dorm and check out and return my keys and then I’m heading home, never to return until the start of next semester!

I’ve been procrastinating and just started studying yesterday. But, I technically consider it getting ahead! Who says studying three days ahead is procrastinating!?

So while my attention should be focused on finals, I can’t help but be excited for the upcoming new show The X Factor. It’s like a new version of American Idol & is coming to FOX this year. And one of my favorite celebrities, Cheryl Cole, is supposed to be a judge on the show which makes it even better! Plus, it has Simon Cowell! How can you go wrong there!?

Here’s one of the commercials for the new show!

We So Excited…

Since it is the end of the year, there have been many events and activities scheduled on campus! On Saturday there was a platform on the mall and several bands played little gigs. Alongside the mini-concert was free tacos from West Coast Tacos! Free tacos and concert? I’m totally there!

Today there were crews of people setting up carnival rides and moon bounces on the mall. I did not stick around because it was raining but I am sure it was fun! I saw all the rides when I was coming back from selling my books back to the Butler bookstore. Only then did it strike me that my freshman year is basically over (except for those pesky finals but let’s disregard that!).

Although it is Monday, the song Friday is randomly stuck in my head so while looking it up online I came across this other Rebecca Black video!

It’s Friday!

Usually I’m happy when it is Friday but today it is bittersweet because it means that the end of Spring Break is approaching. But, it will be fun to get back to Butler and back to my weekly classes. I’m saying this now but I’m sure I’ll regret it once the homework starts piling on!!

In other news….. There is a song/video that is blowing up big on iTunes and Youtube that I thought I’d share. It’s called “Friday” (how appropriate) and I must say it is terrible and entertaining at the same time! There was even a Yahoo story on how bad it is.

But since it’s so bad, it makes the song kind of good! As of right now it has 17 million views on Youtube which is a big jump from having 9 million yesterday. I guess it is from all the media exposure. The girl who sings it was on Good Morning America this morning so that had to help.

Here it is in all its awkward glory!

Black Friday!

Today I went Black Friday shopping and it was fun! I love big crowds so I fit right in! I didn’t wake up early at like 4 AM but I was out around noon so the massive crowds died down by then.

I also unexpectedly went to Olive Garden today with two of my friends. It was god but not as good as the meals at home! :)

One of my friends had a party today and I got to see a lot of my high school friends. It was a great time to relax and get caught up with everyone’s lives. This Thanksgiving break is turning out to be funner and funner as the days go on!

That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting my blog! Feel free to leave a comment

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! :)

This Thanksgiving break has been fun so far! On Saturday I went to Loyola in Chicago. They had school on Monday and Tuesday so I got to stay until Monday. It was a fun and spontaneous weekend and I’m glad I got to spend it with my friends.

I also visited my friend Liz which was even more spontaneous than my weekend. Tomorrow one of my friends is having a party so everyone can come together for the first time since graduation. Hopefully I can go after the madness of Black Friday tomorrow! It’s going to be my first time going shopping on Black Friday and I will be sure to blog about it!

That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Fall Retreat!

Fall retreat was a WONDERFUL way to relax this weekend! I’ll go through all of the events and things which happened during the weekend! It was sponsored by Cru and featured students from various different universities such as IU, Purdue, Wabash, Valparaiso, and of course Butler! Because of this, I got to meet and become friends with many people from different colleges and had a great time!

Friday: I drove two other people down to Seymour, Indiana to SpringHill Camps. We got there and then had to register and were allowed to sign up for different activities such as zip-lining or wall climbing. Then we were assigned cabins and were bused to our camps, since the camp was extremely large! That night we all got together and listened to a guest speaker and got into our discussion groups to discuss our thoughts about not only religion but also about our views on various world issues. To end the night, everyone was invited to play a mass game of Capture the Flag!

Saturday: Since I slept through most of it, I only have a partial story about today. I was awake from 5:30 AM on Friday to 1:00 AM on Saturday so I was EXHAUSTED! I slept through breakfast and lunch and woke up just in time to get into group discussion and partake in the day’s activities. The majority of the people played in the lake but some decided to stay inside (like me) where it was cool. I mostly played ping pong and foosball with my friends Kevin and Brian.

Sunday: This day was my least eventful day at retreat because I had to leave early. I ate breakfast, which consisted of just a plain bowl of cereal, and left retreat 2 hours early because I had to arrive at Butler by 11 to meet my friend Hayley who was coming in form out of town. Hayley goes to Loyola in Chicago and wanted to see my campus. I took her around Butler and then we decided to eat at Bagel Ripple Deli which is not too far off of campus! We then went to visit our two friends at IUPUI to end the night and we ate at Noodles & Company for dinner! It was my first time eating there and it was delicious!

That was my weekend in a nutshell! Sorry for it being so long! I’ll also be doing a random song of the day to change things up!

My set of cabins at retreat had a Western theme which made things fun!
